What a great island. So many things to do inside and outside Acadia National Park. And SO much geology, geography, and biology packed into such a small and very accessible area. Oh, and did I mention that one can get an excellent lobster roll just...More

Thunder hole was absolutely gorgeous! The view was incredible and it was very easy access from the road. Depending on when you go it can be foggy, as with my trip. If you're in the area I would highly recommend stopping by!

Absolutely stunning with great views. This is a must do in the area. The clouds roll over the top giving some great opportunities for photographs.

Loved every minute-from the views at the top of Cadillac Mountain, to eating lobster by the bay, it was an incredible visit. Next time I'd really like to rent a bike and explore more of the park and island. Can't wait to come back

Perfect summer weather. So serene. So beautiful! Would love to get a cottage and stay all summer. The people are friendly too! I feel like we barely scratched the surface in 4 days, so we'll be back!
